The Araluen Arts Centre and the NFSA present the premiere of a new digitally restored documentary - Australia Daze: From midnight to midnight on 26 January 1988, 29 camera crews filmed across the country – covering the tropical north, sandy deserts (including Alice Springs) and big cities. The documentary looks behind the curtains of the official celebrations of the Bicentenary of European settlement in Australia, and the protests against them. The finished film depicts an entertaining and quintessentially Australian disparity of what this day of celebration means across the country. For audiences in 2021, there will be recognisable characters, cringeworthy moments and realisations that some things haven’t changed. ‘A wake-up call to the nation’ – Sydney Morning Herald Australia Daze was recently restored as part of the NFSA Restores program. Join us for the premiere of this new digital print.
